Good post. For me it's always been the meds make it possible for me to begin the rough work of fixing my depressive habits of mind and lifestyle.
As for religion, I have read the studies and wish I believed in a higher power, as it seems to work for people. I just don't, and you cannot manufacture belief where it doesn't exist.
A wise friend of mine once said that it's only when you get depressed that you have to start asking about meaning and purpose. When you aren't the question doesn't occur to you; the answers are obvious.
